I have been very late to the St Etienne sound, I got the "too young to die" singles compilation enjoyed it immensely and have slowly bought the original albums. This is to my mind the best so far (yet to get foxbase alpha). It's very melodic easy to listen to music which suits a number of different moods.
I recommend everyone should have a St Etienne album in their collecion and you can't go far wrong with this, although I doubt it will be your last.

this is one of saint etiennes finest pieces of work to date the opening guitar on goodnight jack sends a shiver down your spine every track is a stroke of genius cracknels voice delivers her trademark cooey dove quality no filler on this cd there is a special magic about saint etiennes music i became hooked after first hearing he,s on the phone unaware that the ets had previosly released several great albumns worth exploring this albumn marks a change of direcion from thier previous work which i would describe as honey to the ears some of the most original pop music you will ever hear has been produced by saint etienne the problem with saint etienne is they never seem to get much airplay they had been going for years until i heard about them if you havent already heard them get good humour and foxbase alpha ireckon you will be left wanting to hear more
